2005 T6

Due to the size and dimensions of our 2005 Beckstoffer To Kalon T6 Cabernet Sauvignon 6L, this wine will be shipped securely in safe, reinforced cardboard packaging.

The 2005 vintage provided positive proof that attentive vineyard management is the key to producing world-class wines. Throughout the valley, we saw vines laden with fruit and heard stories of some vineyards yielding up to 10 tons per acre. It is our belief that less is more and thanks to Thomas' careful crop cultivation we were able to limit our yields to two to three tons per acre, which we feel is the benchmark for making the finest, most complex and complete wines.

    First planted in 1868 by viticultural and winemaking icon Hamilton Crabb, To Kalon Vineyard® has long been regarded as the source of Napa Valley’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Within the prime vineyard blocks, an alluvial fan provides excellent and varied mineral deposits, and the rich soils are filled with marine sediment that gives our wines their distinctive profiles. The vines receive full sun and optimal heat during the day and are cooled by marine fog at night. These conditions allow the Cabernet Sauvignon planted in the vineyard to display its own unique character, and this celebration of individuality is the essence of Schrader ®.
